Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty’s Ben Jones and Heather Beaudoin were both featured in separate articles in the most recent edition of the Life Matter Journal. The Life Matters Journal is a non-partisan organization dedicated to the cause of all human life. When discussing the death penalty, Ben Jones said,
“The death penalty is contrary to conservative principles: a commitment to fiscal responsibility, limited government, and protecting the sanctity of human life. There is nothing conservative about capital punishment.”
While being interviewed by Life Matters Journal, Heather Beaudoin said,
“My pro-life views have had the greatest impact on my position regarding the death penalty. Like so many conservatives, I believe in the sanctity of life from conception to natural death and I do not believe mankind should ever interfere with God’s intent.
I am also a fiscal conservative who fervently believes our government should be fiscally responsible and not waste my tax dollars on expensive programs that accomplish little or nothing. The death penalty system fits the bill because it costs far more than the alternatives.”
